dating an alcoholic

I have been dating an alcoholic for 5 years and he is now in rehab. He has been in rehab for a week now and I get alot of confused signals from him and
a few staff members. What should I anticipate while he is in rehab and how do i support him during this time? His first week there he told me to call him but the staff said only phone call for the first week. I told him that when he called but he said that was odd because several residents receive phone calls.
What are some guideline on how to supportive of a love one in rehab??

You'll find your best guidelines from Al-Anon, because the best support you can give your A is taking care of yourself and detaching from their situation.

Read the "stickies" on this forum, as well. There's lots of good information here.

Good luck to you - its a hard situation to be in!
